connell said his round-the-clock negotiations with vice president biden had paid off. >> i can report that we've reached an agreement on all of the tax -- the tax -- issues. >> reporter: first and foremost, the bush era tax cuts. the two sides agreed to extend them permanently for all household income under $400,000 a year for individuals, $450,000 a year for families. negotiators also agreed to prevent the al tesh tiff minimum tax on the wealthy from hitting millions of middle class families every year by permanently adjusting it to inflation. and they agreed to hike the estate tax rate from 35% to 40%, but the first $5 million worth of inheritance would be exempt from taxation permanently. the breakthugh prompted relief for many, including connecticut senator joe lieber man. >> i hope the negotiations going on now end with an agreement and i hope that we will pass it with bipartisan majority in theong senate and the house. >> reporter: but others, chiefly republicans, were angry that the deal did not include a serious package of spending cuts and might actually add to the deficit. tennessee
between the vice president of the united states, joe biden and mitch mcconnell. a sign of optimism the last time they tried to work out a deal, it was successful. they extended the current tax rates for a couple of years and extended long term unemployment insurance and 2 percentage cut in social security. last time they got together it was successful between the two and now they are leading points on negotiation. >> if we don't get a deal before january 1, the taxes go up pretty high. any idea how much people will be paying? >> i think there is a misconception when you talk about the bush tax cuts which are the current rates we're operating under, it only hits folks at the top of the income scale, bush tax cutting all the way to the bottom, all the way up to the top. pretty much anybody who has an income is going to be paying more in taxes if there is not any type of deal to extend current rates. >> shifting gears, it has to do little with the fiscal cliff. news about the secretary of state, she in the hospital tonight. can you update us on her condition. >> this is statement from
mcconnell was working with vice-president biden on the spending side. and so there may be some person that has to go on the senate democrats to get the bill passed gerri: arm-twisting everywhere. let's talk about this potential deal as it has been outlined to us. we would have tax hikes on folks with incomes above 400,000 if your single, above water and 50,000 if you're a couple. permanent patch to anc, the alternative minimum tax. estate tax also. 40 percent for states with 5 million more. going way below that level. jobless benefits extended for a year. can you live with the deal like that? >> if that is all it is in there is no spending cuts than it is not the balanced approach to the president has promised the american people, and so it will be difficult for me to vote for. there are some good permanent things in the tax code related to all the rates below the 404 under 50,000 level. at&t fixes are good. but without any spending cuts on here, if it's just a revenue driven package so the president and spend more money will be a tough sell in the house of representatives. gerri: as
with vice president joe biden. we know they spoke at least twice over night. the last conversation we are aware of was about 6:45 this morning. we don't know the status of those talks. we don't know whether they are its senate offers back or fourth. leaders of both parties have said little this morning. senate majority agree -- leader harry reid came to the floor and did not have much of an update. if there is is going to be a deal today, it will be between mr. mcconnell and mr. biden. there is little in the way of ongoing conversation between mr. reed and mr. mcca mcconnell. >> what about the mechanics of any deal if there is an agreement at least in the senate -- how quickly can come to the floor and how likely is it we can see action on the house floor later today or tonight or tomorrow? >> it becomes tricky. we know what the allies of any deal would be. they have been bandied around for about two years. translating the outline of the deal in legislative language is difficult and the staff would have to work in overdrive to get that done and they have to make sure all 100 senators
with the president since november 16th. vice president biden and treasury secretary timothy geithner also attend. but there was little to suggest the makings of an 11th hour bargain. a source familiar with the meeting told the newshour its president is sticking with his offer from last friday. it included keeping the bush era tax break force the middle class but raising tax rates on incomes over 250,000 dollars a year. president also wants to extend unemployment benefits for some 2 million americans who will lose them in the new year. and a proposal would delay any spending cuts. the president asked for an up or down vote on his plan unless there is a counter proposal that will pass both the house and senate. a little more than an hour after the meeting began, several participants were seen leaving. >> and back at the capital the senate's democratic majority leader harry reid and republican minority leader mitch mcconnell offered their takes on the meeting. >> we had a good meeting down at the white house. we are engaged in discussions, the majority leader, myself and the white house, in the hop
questions, three of them, and the lead up to the top for president obama, vice president joe biden or secretary clinton aware of the repeated request for how upgrades. second, why wasn't president obama and vice president joe biden the secretary clinton interviewed? hawken one examine all the circumstances without interviewing the very top leadership and finally, in 1999, the admiral released a list of over 100 fertility to individuals has the list of the interviewees to be made public >> i would be glad to start, mr. smith, and then turn over to tom on the first questions to the best of my knowledge just specific security requests that were made as you mentioned when from benghazi didn't get as far as secretary clinton and you have to direct the other question to the white house met with secretary clinton i believe it is accurate to say second, and sorry, the second question? >> i don't believe there was an interview at secretary clinton but he would have to address that to the ambassador and then on the third question? >> on the list of i believe they did interview 100 individual
revenues whatsoever. we had meetings with the vice president, biden and cantor. cantor walked out of those meetings. he is the majority leader in the house. we had the gang of six, the gang of eight. we had this super committee, and they were doing good things, good things, dealing with entitlements and revenues. and a week before they were to report, buy virtue of statute, i get a letter signed by virtually every republican, too bad about the super committee, we're not going to do anything with revenues. so this is not a capsule of a couple of days. this has been going on for years. they cannot cross over the threshold that has been built by grover norquist. people who are rich, who make a lot of money, they are not opposing raising the taxes on them. the only people in america who don't think taxes should be raised on the rich are the republicans who work in this building. so any time the speaker and the republican leader come to the president and say we have got a deal for you, the president's door is always open, and mine is, too. mr. mcconnell: mr. president? the presiding officer: th
